I'm probably with Steve on this... The piece of land we just bought has a few hundred feet of driveway... This spring, we got stuck on the hill approaching the driveway (unplowed county road)... 80 series with 315 MTZ's and rear locker; the handicap was the utility trailer that was acting as an anchor in the deep heavy snow... Once I was stuck, I was done... As I winched myself out of the hole I had dug, the neighbor plowed a path for me on the road using his quad with little winch-controlled blade attached... He then did my driveway and front yard in about 20 minutes... When I saw that, I gave up any idea I had of using my FJ-40 as "plow truck"... I'm going to get a quad with a little blade...
His driveway is almost a mile long and he does it with his quad...
